Ticked isn’t your average documentary, and when you see the trailer, in addition to two brand new clips from the film, you’ll begin to get a grasp of how expansive this project truly is. What starts as mere interest blossoms into something far darker, and it’s going to blow your mind.
David Farrier and Dylan Reeve direct the film, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 17th.
Right now you can take a look at the official trailer.
And here are those two clips we told you about.
And finally, the simplistically beautiful poster.
Synopsis: One of the most talked-about films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, TICKLED begins with reporter David Farrier stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, and reaching out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier’s sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity.
Discovering the truth becomes Farrier’s obsession, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling wormhole.
